Baked Kabab Bahraini

  • 1/2 cup chickpea/gram/garbanzo flour (in Gulf countries this is labeled explicitly as Kabab flour)
  •  1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 red onion – finely chopped
  • 1 small tomato – finely diced
  • 1 green chilli pepper – very finely chopped (I have a low threshold for spicy things so I used half)
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp cumin powder
  • sea salt/black pepper to taste
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil (or cooking oil of choice)

Mix all dry ingredients and add water and whisk to create a batter-y consistency, add it in a little at a time till you get a batter that’s not too runny.

Grease a baking pan with the coconut oil and add the batter in tablespoon increments.

Bake under the gril,  for about 5 minutes or until edges are brown and crispy.

Flip and bake for an additional 2 minutes (but careful not to burn!)
